Mosaico was developed along with a printing system that makes it possible to create tiles to size and with a digital image or print.
These tiles are made of a composite consisting of fiber reinforced plastics. This makes for a strong tile that can be used both indoors and outdoors, in wet or dry areas. The material is UV resistant so that the printed image does not discolour.
Each composite tile is only 2-3 mm thick, so it is not necessary in many cases to remove old layers and substrates first when applying Mosaico. The tile can be applied to almost any smooth surface. Due to its flexible properties, it is also possible to apply these tiles to curved or rounded surfaces.
The minimum and maximum dimensions of one tile are 10 x 10 mm (minimum) to 300 x 300 mm (maximum). With Mosaico Regular, individual tiles are all the same shape and size regardless of the shape of the tile. With Mosaico Irregular, there are multiple shapes and/or different sizes in a design that can be used interchangeably.
This “custom” design product is made in Italy.
